Fundraising to support the vital work of Bowel Cancer Australia
A highlight of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is Red Apple Day (the third Wednesday every June), when Australians are encouraged to support the vital work of Bowel Cancer Australia through the purchase of a Bowel Cancer Awareness Ribbon and apple themed fundraising activities.
For further information visit Bowel Cancer Australia's Red Apple Day website.
The story of Bowel Cancer Australia's Red Apple logo and Bowel Cancer Awareness Ribbon
Our apple symbolises our bowel cancer message.
The outline of the apple logo appears as an abstract of a human colon.
The small hole in the apple is caused by a worm. If detected early and removed, the worm is unable to continue affecting the apple or the health of the tree.
It's the same with people. If bowel cancer is detected early it can be treated successfully and people can continue to enjoy life.
Apples are also a nutritious source of dietary fibre.
